Product Description

Premium Blueberry Super Plant

A member of the Rabbiteye family, the Tifblue Blueberry has long held a place of prominence among commercial growers and astute kitchen gardeners. It’s considered a premium berry – firm, sweet and flavorful – and has a proven track record for producing copious quantities year-after-year.

Easiest Blueberry to Grow
The Tifblue blooms in March with medium-sized berries ripe and ready to pick late-June through July. It adapts to conditions where many blueberry varieties struggle to mature. It has “roots” native to the Southeast but needs about 650 chill hours annually to turn out reliable crops.

This combination makes it heat and drought tolerant while being the most cold-hardy of the Rabbiteye blueberries. It’s disease resistant and has few serious pests… aside from the neighborhood birds capitalizing on a “free meal.”

Big Return with Minimal Investment
Known as a heavy producer, it doesn’t take long before the Tifblue is laden with fruit. It starts producing within a year or two of planting, and by year 7 or 8, harvest season can deliver up to 15 pounds of berries!

The Tifblue performs best with a cross pollinator nearby to maximize production and ensure bigger berries. The Brightwell and Climax varieties have proven compatible Tifblue Rabbiteye blueberry pollinators.

To get all the needed nutrients, the Tifblue prefers a bright, sunny location where the soil is highly acidic. Minimal pruning is required. A light trim before spring allows clusters to set and berries to reach their full potential.

Healthy and Nutritious “Blue” Ribbon Winner
The Tifblue is a backyard garden super-food, enjoyed as a summer staple while affording plenty of extra produce for winter reserves. Its blue pigment is loaded with antioxidants, boosting the immune system and preventing infection. It’s packed with fiber, vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals that far outweigh its small stature in health benefits.

This blueberry adds a sweet taste and colorful texture to breakfast cereals, breads, smoothies and salads. To enjoy post summer, simply transfer straight from bucket to freezer containers. Thaw and wash as needed.

Festively Fruitful Shrub
The Tifblue is more than just a practical food source -- this shrub is an ornamental addition to your garden with three full seasons of interest. In spring, bell-shaped blossoms cover the shrub in a profusion of white and pale pink. As berries develop, they turn from green to pink to bright, blueberry blue. In one last radiant burst, the Tifblue’s glossy, green leaves take on a rich burgundy color at season’s end.

Unlike many fruit producers, this plant requires little space to thrive. It has a tall, upright habitat that works into your landscape as a border hedge, mass planting or fruitful focal point. If your yard space is limited, it can even adapt to container life with some additional maintenance.

A vigorous grower with high yields, it only takes a few of the Tifblue to stock your freezer full! Ready to start enjoying your own bounty of blueberries? Get your order in today for this favorite Rabbiteye variety.

Love my new plants.

I received blueberries on time, and in great shape. I would like to know how old these two bushes are. One of the plants was almost twice the size of the other. Overall very pleased with this order.

Tifblue Blueberry Bushes

I am very impressed with these blueberry bushes. I wish, I had made my purchase from Fast Growing Trees sooner. Your plants are bigger and healthier than the bushes I had purchased earlier from the local home improvement stores.
